Consider it all joy!

Did you ever think that the lessons and experiences in our lives make us who we are? Good or bad they leave an imprint on us. I think sometimes it is hard to see the good in the bad, but once we are through a tough time we reflect and think now I see why.

This made me think of a verse in the  NIV Bible James 1: 2-5 and 12

2 Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, 3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. 4 And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
5 But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him.

James 1:12 Was a very comforting Bible verse to my Sister-in-law that lost her battle with cancer 2 years ago this week.

12 Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.

Amidst our troubles try to consider them all joy and soon you will hopefully see it that way! Have a blessed day, Candy
